Thank you for your time.
please I had unprotected sex on the first day of my period and was pretty sure my partner released inside me, out of been scared of getting pregnant, I took postinor 2 on the second day which made my period to stop on the third day (normally my period last for 5days), I also noticed that I ovulated 3days later but I thought that its not a big deal.

Now the problem is that this month, my period refused to come, am 6days late, I have taken a home pregnancy test thrice now but its all negative. my nipples has been paining me for a week plus now and since yesterday I have been bloating and loss of appetite
please I need your help, what can be wrong with me?

Hello, jonas dora. Thank you for posting.

We cannot predict if a woman will be pregnant or not after having unprotected sex and/or taking emergency contraception. We can tell you how ECP works and the risks.

Emergency contraceptives are up to 95% effective when taken as prescribed within the first 24 hours and up to 90% effective if taken within 72 hours, so the risk is very small. It works by preventing ovulation and stopping a pregnancy from starting. It prevents a pregnancy, it does not end one. Side effects can include stomach aches, headaches, dizziness, breast pain, nausea and a general feeling of being unwell. The more frequently they are taken, the more likely a woman is to have side effects and an irregular cycle. They should be taken only for emergencies, not used as a method of birth control.

Side effects usually start 2-7 days after taking the medication and may or may not include bleeding or spotting. Not all women get symptoms. Some get many, or a few, or none. If a woman doesn’t get her next period within a week of it’s expected date, a pregnancy test is advised. Periods can often be delayed or longer/shorter as a result of taking emergency contraception. Each woman is different. Periods should get back to normal by the second cycle after.
